If approved, the M&O Override Continuation will continue to provide roughly $9.4 million dollars of additional funding each year to attract and retain quality teachers and staff, maintain school nurse positions at every campus, maintain special classes such as physical education, arts education, and music, and maintain critical support staff on district campuses (academic coaches, behavior coaches, etc.).
Without an M&O Override in place, the district would lose funds that support people and programs. The district would lose funding that helps attract and retain quality teachers. The district would lose funding that pays for school nurses and critical support staff at all campuses, putting the district in a safety deficit. In addition, the ability to offer programs such as arts, music, and physical education would be threatened. There may be a charge for full-day Kindergarten. Athletic and extracurricular activities may be threatened, as well.
